Seeing Is Believing

My dad always used Old Spice, but I don’t recall this ever happening to him. Nicely done special effects – most of them simple mechanics. Only the hand with the diamonds has been superimposed on the single take in this commercial. Mind you, it took three days and dozens of attempts before everything worked.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.

    Ah, Lesley, he’s gorgeous, but it’s an ad – all is illusion, smoke and mirrors… He’s not for sale…
